Lake’s three incumbents announce re-election decisions


Two of the three incumbents on the Clear Lake School Board whose positions are set to expire in September have announced they will not seek re-election this fall.
    Longtime School Board member Ron Andrews and current Board President Tom Lovell said they have decided not to run in the Sept. 13 election.  Vice President Deb Betz has said she will seek a second full term on the Board.  She was initially elected in 2007 to finish the final year of a term vacated by Theresa Brakke.  She was then re-elected in 2008 to a three-year term.
    Terms on the Board are now four-years in length and elections are held every other odd-numbered year.
    Andrews said he feels the time is right for him to step away from the Board position he has held for the past 26 years.
